    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Why... does the question... of why they're delaying keep coming up? They're finishing stuff that's farther along and saving on the costs until later so it doesn't affect current earnings. The addition is not going to add anything but prestige. The parks are going to fill up when things get...

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    In Shanghai the building is more visible from worse places. The current positioning is possibly the least intrusive way. If they'd angled it differently, the box would have probably dwarfed Space Mountain from within the park. This is one of the things that has bothered me the most, the...

    That's true. During that time we just had to deal with backstage views inside the parks.

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Is it not to allow for the tall water pageant floats or anything else that may come to cross the roadway without needing a drawbridge since it's one of the prime thoroughfares and leads to a deluxe hotel? That's done from the entrance area of the ride, is meant to play into that the facade is...

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Wow, I did not realize until looking into it now just how far over the canopy goes. The South elevation should be almost completely blocked. The corner of the building poking out at the bottom of the canopy on the right is the lower elevation step that's half whitish and half blue. Man...

    The... the tree in the center that is not very large compared to the rest of the trees elsewhere in the park is close to covering the show building. It actually seems like it won't take as much as I thought.

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Everything I've heard said in this thread. The trusted people seemed to keep saying that it's being delayed to push costs into later quarters. Is that a misconception? I've checked in over months with weeks-long gaps in between so I can't remember specific instances but in my head it...

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Pages and pages of discussing the views of the building and now the canopy is actually being built and is indeed covering the building even better than I expected from inside the park and a bunch of newcomers pop in and say it's going to look terrible inside the park. The general consensus is...

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Wow. My brain completely misread that. I saw "roundhouse" and was imagining the theming of the circus station and saw "town" and was imagining Main Street. My brain sometimes jumps too quickly and fills in gaps/extrapolates. Then again, it took me a moment to realize "shove" meant "go...

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Ahh... I was confused because the primary thing I think of with that attraction was the misconception of its role leading to guest anger at what they saw as a bait and switch. Hmm... The only one I see is a pair of small pedestrian pathways by Space. The ones on the stretch never before...

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    I imagine it's the roadway that goes past at the track level. It's got a lot of warning lights one wouldn't see while going backwards and it's on the stretch that isn't involved in either of the routes the train has gone backwards on. A situation where people think that a transportation...

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Why? You've got cautious people in the US and every market outside of the country that have put off their visits until now, some of which haven't got a closer park to enjoy, that haven't gone in what will likely approach if not reach a year. They will come back when it's open no matter what...

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Good thing it will largely be hidden from themed areas. Yeah. I quoted this before someone else said it, but I've never seen this either. Honestly, I'm not even sure I've seen parks vloggers with a Patreon, but that may just be the ones I've watched. We're in a weird spot of having...

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Hah! I misread that. Thought you were listing things in that area that the view of Tron would be from. That's always been an odd area. A jumble that is simultaneously full of stuff and empty. A big, long straightaway from the Tea Party to 90% of Tomorrowland.

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Huh... I hadn't thought about comparing the retaining walls to the Shanghai sky walkway. They cover a lot of the park stuff and a lot of the food and have gotten big enough that they get invited to sneak peeks. I like them. I think they're genuine and good people. They're usually...

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    I'm just now noticing something I didn't before (although it may not have been there earlier). What's up with the retaining walls under the lower portions of the canopy here? Could this hint at what's being done with the railroad and the pathway? I'm unsure which side is going to be filled...

    The Trackers stayed at Bay Lake Tower over the weekend, giving real life guest views of what the box will look like from Bay Lake Tower (what seems like one of the best places on the property to see it). 1:15 - The view from the ground level parking lot. 8:20 - The view through the window of...

    I didn't even think about the fact that finishing the front will allow the train to be put back in now. Is there any reason they wouldn't finish the pathways overhead now?
